Yoko Ono turns 85 today (February 18), and while many remember her for being the wife of the late John Lennon, Ono is a revered performance artist in her own right.  In honor of Ono’s birthday, here are three very different (and very unique) performance art pieces from her.

 

“Cut Piece”

This is one of Ono’s most notable performances form 1965 where she sat on stage in a black dress with a pair of scissors and invited members of the audience to cut off parts of her dress.

 

“Voice Piece For  Soprano & Wish Tree”

Here Ono is in 2010 at an exhibit at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

 

“Sky Piece To Jesus Christ”

Lastly, here’s Ono at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in 2013 doing an “Action Piece” painting.  (Around the 7:35 mark.)
